Care Act Compliant, Level 3 – Specialist Deafblind Assessor
This is our level 3 OCN qualification developed to meet the requirements of The Care Act 2014 as “specialist training to carry out assessment of people who are deafblind” for non-complex cases.
This unique training and qualification has been developed to meet the needs of those social work and care professionals who will be tasked with carrying out an assessment of a deafblind person ensuring they are appropriately trained.
Though primarily aimed at social work professionals in contact with an older deafblind adult, the course will also of be of great interest to others in the care and community sector who engage with elderly people.
We work with SCIE the Social Care Institute for Excellence to ensure this training fully complies with the Care Act and with their incredible nationwide network to ensure it gets to the attention of the whole of the care sector.
This course is part of a suite of four courses that provide a new and comprehensive package of awareness and skills training for a range of types of care professionals and volunteers.
When combined with our other qualifications, your prior learning, qualifications and experience, successful completion of our Specialist Deafblind Assessor would mean that as a social work professional you will be well above the minimum requirements of the Act.
